So i recently bought an 03 gts spyder, with one of the biggest problems with the car being that the seats dont recline to allow access to the back seats. not a major problem but something i would like to solve if possible, though considering some tears in the seats it wouldnt be THAT big a deal if i cant fix them, would just mean having to hunt down replacements sooner than later. can anyone offer advice on how to go about trying to get the seats working right again, and/or what the best avenue would be to get replacements (preferably stock but if theres no reliable way to get stock seats then i guess cheaper racing seats and brackets are the only option right?) thanks for any help you guys can give!

The lever to fold the seat forward to allow passengers to get in is at the side of the seat.. Pull up on that lever and the seat should fold forwards . If this does not happen then the operating cable is broke or come loose. If you are sitting in the seat and pull this lever you can recline backwards... Take your car to your local auto upholstery shop and they should be able to help you better..

The best option is to buy my seats at an unbelievable bargain price if you live near NY, and you're still looking? PM me.
